More than 3 inches of rain last week brought harvest to a halt, Jesse said Oct. 7. “There were beans coming out, but with the rain, that all has stopped,” she said. “It’s very wet. When I’m looking down the rows, I can see water standing.” They haven’t started on their own beans yet, but neighbors said yields are better than last year. Corn harvested before the rain was still at 18 to 21 percent moisture, she said.
